Property Value dbo: abstract Joseph Arthur, Comte de Gobineau 14 July — 13 October was a French aristocrat who was best known by his contemporaries as a novelist, diplomat and travel writer but is today most remembered for developing the theory of the Aryan master race and helping to legitimise racism by scientific racist theory and racial demography. Gobineau was an elitist who, in the immediate aftermath of the Revolutions of , wrote a page book, An Essay on the Inequality of the Human Races, in which he claimed that aristocrats were superior to commoners and that they possessed more Aryan genetic traits because of less inbreeding with inferior races Alpines and Mediterraneans. Gobineau's writings were quickly praised by white supremacist, pro-slavery Americans like Josiah C. Nott and Henry Hotze, who translated his book into English but omitted around pages of the original book, including those parts that negatively described Americans as a racially mixed population. Gobineau's writings were also influential on prominent anti-Semites such as Richard Wagner, the Romanian far-right politician professor A.

As I'm sure Misters Banerjee and Shelat can attest, the peppercorns example for determining racial superiority left us all laughing for days. Amol rated it liked it May 29, When I expressed my disdain for this book, my professor called me "a child of empiricism" and suggested that I could learn from it.
She was right. This book offers useful insights into the willful irrationality of racism, and a look into a time, a milieu, that was steeped in it.
It is worth pondering how educated people, any people, thought they had reason to believe such nonsense. I still don't like it. View 2 comments. Sarah added it Mar 17, Amy rated it did not like it Aug 15, Scott added it Nov 12, Matthew W rated it really liked it Jan 10, Jan 28, Mr.
Interesting early racial tract. To be read more as historical background than for any contribution to the field. View 1 comment. To give this racist polemic any more than two stars is impossible. Reading Gobineau's pseudoscientific justification for a racial hierarchy that postures the "white race" as the dominant class is a challenging journey in itself.
More challenging, however, is understanding the weight that this publication had on the development of racial thought throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Certainly not a pleasure read, but useful to understand white supremacists early justificat To give this racist polemic any more than two stars is impossible.

It's good, not because its reasoning is correct because it clearly isn't , but because it paints a very clear picture of the rationale for racism and even sets the stage for future Nazi race philosophy. Again, remember that while the positions the book advocates may clearly be morally and logically wrong, the book itself is very valuable for what it reveals about racist thought.
